Availability of Labor at Calving Time

If labor is in short supply at calving time, then an option would be to mate all yearling heifers to a smaller breed of bull to reduce the frequency of assisted calving. This complicates a crossbreeding system by effectively reducing the herd size, requiring additional pasture resources, and producing calves with another breed composition. Selecting bulls based on their expected progency difference or breeding value for direct calving ease may accomplish the same goal without using a different breed of bull on yearling heifers.
